215: Top 15 Counter Service Restaurants in Walt Disney World

Not all theme park restaurants are created equal. One of the biggest mistakes first-time guests can make when visiting a Disney park is to stop and eat at the first place they see because they assume every restaurant will serve the same cheeseburgers and chicken nuggets. Walt Disney World actually has a large variety of counter-service options, and many of them are quite good. On this week’s show, we count down our 15 favorites across property.

In another edition of The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, we share our picks for the most well designed attraction entrances, the most unattractive, and the ones that could use a bit of work. Plus, we have some fun with the hashtag #BadDisneySequels, and in another Mad Chatter game we try to guess how much certain Disney items sold on eBay. Come play along now!

197: A Star Is Born – 11 Times Alan Menken Made Disney Magic

Back in 1989, composer Alan Menken made his Disney debut with the majestic score and the memorable songs featured in The Little Mermaid. The film not only launched the famous Disney Renaissance of the 1990s, but it also marked the start of a beautiful partnership between Disney and Menken, who ended up creating music for classics such as Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, Hercules, and more.

On this week’s show we take a closer look at 11 Disney projects for which Menken provided the music, and we share our picks for the most essential Menken tunes.

Also on this week’s episode, we highlight the good, bad, and ugly interiors of quick service restaurants at Walt Disney World. Check it out on show 197!
